The Fleet derives its name from the Saxon 'fleot', meaning shallow water.
The field recordings that make up this soundscape were recorded near to the village of Fleet that lies close to the lagoon of the same name. This area was made famous by the novel of smuggling by J. Meade Faulkner, "Moonfleet" published in 1898.
